3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Lovely clear bronze appearance. Slightly spiced with a bit of nuttiness. Far more body than I expected for its strength. Well rounded, well bottled and worth trying.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear copper amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lacing. Caramel, toffee and fruity and floral hops notes make up the aroma. Floral and spice hops up front give way to full-bodied toffee and caramel malt in the mid-palate. Fruity hops come into the finish. A nicely balanced bitter.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A nondescript darkish looking bitter, with no bite and little flavour. Appearance better than drinking experience. Almost no aroma, very flat and lifeless (could be down to the pub), and a faint bready taste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very clean dark golden to brown body with bubbly instable head. Dry and rough malts, lightly toasty, dusty and with a rough low yeast profile. Cardboard even. Taste is in the same vain, not terribly interesting and a bit too dusty. Ah well. (50cl bottle from Beer City)
